Netizens slam Mike Defensor’s Ivermectin push, wants people to sign consent to free him from any liability

Defensor’s statement earned ire from Netizens, blasting the congressman for his irresponsible act.

Several Netizens have slammed Partylist Congressman Mike Defensor over his latest remark about his Ivermectin push.

In response, when asked who will be held liable if ever Ivermectin showed adverse effects to people who will consume it, Defensor said people will give consent before they use the anti-parasitic drug.

“May consent naman ‘yung tao doon eh,” he said.

Defensor’s statement earned ire from Netizens, blasting the congressman for his irresponsible act.

Netizens said it’s shameful for Defensor to use people’s vulnerability during this pandemic to advance his political agenda.

One Netizen warned people who will buy into Defensor’s stunt that in case–side effects will show after they take the drugs, no one can blame Defensor since they will have to make their consent.

Defensor has been highly criticized online for his Ivermectin initiative.

In his recent social media post, Defensor announced he is giving away free Ivermectin drugs to his constituents in Quezon City.

Defensor’s post slammed by Netizens, especially by health care workers. They claimed that Ivermectin has no FDA approval yet for human use since it is a veterinary drug.

In a tweet, doctor-activist Dr. RJ Naguit urged the Department of Health (DoH) to hold Defensor and his accomplice doctors accountable for gross misinformation with regard to Ivermectin use.

@daphine3 jokingly tweeted asking if Mike Defensor has suddenly become a doctor comparing him to Atty. Percida Acosta, who also posed like a doctor during the Dengvaxia controversy.

@cholelilove called on the UN Human Rights Council and the International Criminal Court to look at Defensor’s stunt for putting the people lives in harm’s way.

Same with Netizen Dr. JM Deblois, who tweeted “Arrest Mike Defensor.”

Other Netizens wanted to stop Defensor from his treacherous propaganda on what people need is a concrete solution against the pandemic and not false hopes from the still unproven drug.
